About Me
Hi! I'm excited to be a part of Connecting Threads community where I can learn all kinds of stuff. I'm a confident beginner quilter, but I love a good challenge. I grew up in the heart of Minneapolis, MN where I spent a lot of time enjoying the lakes. Now, I'm in LOVE with the NW, where I've called it my home since 2002.
Besides playing with my daughter, in my spare time, I like to hike and casually bike, as well as do anything artsy like painting, photography and making crafts. Oh yes, I also love fabric prints, especially modern, bold or bright colors.
I'm also mom to two precious little girls, Hannah (b April, 2013) and Ella (b January 2010).
Hobbies and Interests
quilting, general sewing, knitting, gardening
My pets are awesome!
Lucy & Deniro, two adventurous black and white cats

Posted on December 4, 2013 at 9:02am 0 Comments

Week 10 of 12 Weeks of Christmas pattern is up! The idea to create this mini wall hanging actually stems from a childhood memory. Each year around Christmas time, my sister and I would go over to my Aunts' house where they would have us help decorate their tree, complete with a train and of course...a warm cup of hot cocoa! This was a special time for my sister and I;…

Interested in learning embroidery?

I get lovely daily emails from one of my favorite design/DIY places: Design*Sponge, and I was delighted to find a really cute picture tutorial on various embroidery stitches, all sampled together within an embroidery hoop. This project is so cute! I would love to make this; it would be good practice for me.

Here's the blog posting…


A gift for a new baby.

Posted on September 21, 2011 at 11:30am 7 Comments

So this isn't exactly quilting, but it's crafty. I've been making frames as gifts for many years, and I just started taking photos of them. This frame is for my husband's cousin's daughter, baby Georgia, born just 10 days ago. Her nursery is hot pink with green and orange accents, so I thought the flower stickers and jewels (hello bling! they live in Hollywood) would go nicely with a hot pink spray painted wooden frame I purchased at a crafts store. 

I hope she likes it! (P.S. my…

  Jenna:  Here's the info on the Mixer Mate.


The pattern is by Little Lamb Patterns. Kristen is the designer. I didn't ask her permission to post her name so I'll only do the first name.   Glad you liked it.  It was fun to make.
